Quatrième de couverture

How would you like to have your own psychic hotline, available 24 hours a day? Readers will have just that with The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to the I-Ching, the 5,000-year-old Chinese book of divination and wisdom. In Chinese, "I" means Change and "Ching" means Book; hence, the Book of Changes. By throwing or casting yarrow sticks, coins, or seeds and interpreting the way they fall, I Ching provides one of 64 hexagrams, or possible pieces of advice

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Version of the I Ching 8 septembre 2001
Par Scott Ransom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is definitely a worthwhile edition of the I Ching for anyone interested in the subject matter. Over the years I have collected numerous versions of the I Ching, and this one is probably the most readable of the lot of them.
The background history of the I Ching is well researched and presented, and the chapters relating it to Chaos Theory, the Holographic Paradigm, and others are extremely interesting and valuable reading.
The heart of the book is, of course, the presentations of the hexagrams. While not as "in-depth" as some of my other translations/interpretations, this isn't necessarily a bad thing - many of those other books give you enough information to thoroughly overwhelm you. The interpretations here are written in modern English, and are very understandable. What makes them truly useful, however, is the way the author relates the meanings of the hexagrams to the history of the political situations occuring when the book was put together in its "modern" form (during the time of King Wen and the Duke of Zhou). This makes the hexagrams MUCH easier to relate to your own personal situations - let's face it, most of the traditional interpretations leave this background out, and instead just present phrases for the hexagrams and individual lines which can be extraordinarily puzzling and apparently unrelated to the question at hand. By relating each hexagram to the actual historical happening that inspired the traditional interpretations, the hexagrams are put into a much clearer (and more easily applicable) light.
Some of the versions of the I Ching I have which are written in "modern English" just give the authors own personal take on the hexagrams - while sometimes useful, these "translations" are usually somewhat suspect because they often leave the original texts of the hexagrams and lines out. But that is not the case here! The traditional texts are included, and then presented with additional explanatory text by the author. So, you get the best of both worlds. Sometimes the authors own interpretations aren't quite applicable to your question, but the traditional text is, and sometimes it's the other way around. This edition of the I Ching give you both!
I wholeheartedly recommend this book. If this is your first exposure to the I Ching, it will serve as an excellent introduction, and certainly one you will use for years to come (even if you purchase several other different translations, as I have). If you are like me, someone who has studied the I Ching for years, you will immediately appreciate the clarity and depth the author presents.
Don't be fooled by the title. You do not need to be a "complete idiot" to get great value from this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Blessèd Idiocy! 7 mai 2002
Par JOHN MERLIN KING LEIGH - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
For the past 25 or so years I have been failing to make head nor tail of the Yi Jing. My studies suggested and my intuition told me, that there was something very significant to be found there but the text, though it seemed to provide many glimpses of relevance and truth, always slipped back into obscure regions peopled only by erudite sinologists... and where these luminaries sometimes seem to have slight differences of criterion (the things Mr Cleary says about R.Wilhelm!).
There was nothing for it but to declare myself a Complete Idiot - something which had been staring me in the face for longer than I like to think - and this very Daoist act of auto-abasement was rewarded by a version of the Yi Jing, or rather the Zhouyi (its wings having been usefully clipped of Confucian confusion) which at last made sense. Sense not only for the clarity of the translation (or transliteration or whatever) but by the meaning and coherence of the text.
The sensation is rather like having a plaster removed from a broken limb.
I would like to recommend the book to anyone who wants a clear, manageable and simple (but not simplistic) version of the background to and wisdom of this classic.
Five Stars! Bravo! and Many Thanks to Ms Moran and Master Yu!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best I Ching Book Ever! 15 août 2001
Par Judy Adler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Joseph Yu and Elizabeth Moran have succeeded in coordinating information that is vital for students, practitioners, and teachers of Feng Shui in their new book "The Complete Idiot's Guide to The I Ching." I have been years trying to piece together and collate this kind of information. I am thrilled and delighted with the contents of the book and how it flows.
The hexagrams are interpreted in modern-day language yet the reference to the historical events are clearly established. The sections dealing with the principles of the Chinese cosmos and how modern science relates to the I-Ching are extraordinary keys to bridging the gap between ancient wisdom and today's world. The section on Feng Shui is a real treat and positioned perfectly in the book. I have a different relationship with life after having read this book.
This book is a universal guide to life.
If I were to recommend one book for everyone in the world to read, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to The I Ching" is the one!
Thank you, Joseph and Elizabeth, for all the time, attention, effort, and resources you so generously put into this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very well written book about the I Ching 11 juillet 2004
Par Alan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Usually, the "Complete Idiot's" and "Dummies" books give you the basic information on their subject, with some depth, but nothing too encompassing. I was very surprised with this book -- it gives in-depth information about the I Ching and its history, as well as touching upon other things like synchronicity. The translation of the I Ching included in the book is also rather well done, and better than some stand-alone translations (for example, "The Taoist I Ching"). I learned a lot about the I Ching from this book. Recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 At Last! 21 octobre 2001
Par Matthew & Carol Erwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
At Last! A reliable & supremely useable guide to this ancient art & science from two of the best known authorities in related fields [Classical Feng Shui]. When a couple of true heavy hitters put their all into a book like this it becomes an invaluable manual that-- like their other works-- is highly practical and easily put to use. Pronounced "E"-Jing, Nobel prize winner Neils Bohr discovered in 1945 that the I Ching was binary code for--
you guessed it-- Quantum Theory. I don't mind recommending the book to anyone at the bargain prices that the Idiot's Guide softbounds go for -- in fact, we
have regularly recommended their first book here in the Twin Cities on our cable show-- All About Feng Shui for Home & Office.
